Yes a 'summary' or 'result' field would be distinctly valuable from the
progress reporting. Whatever data gets put in a 'summary' field I think
needs to be structured in a way that the CLI can parse and show it
beautifully. I don't have a clear idea of what that looks like across
different plugin types, but if there are ideas of a structure getting those
written out would be good. Is adding a field like that the kind of thing
that would go in the MVP  for Pulp3 or on the future feature list ?
As an update on the current state of things. The "result" field was removed
as part of .
